Although the epic first season of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta is still fresh on everyone’s minds, the show that started it all, Love And Hip Hop, will make its return with the debut of Season 3. As we recently reported, Mona Scott Young has had to do a few things to shake up the cast and garner some interest in the upcoming season. So as an answer to Love And Hip Hip Hop’s leading star Stevie J., she has selected Joe Budden to be this season’s designated ladies man, as well as making sure to keep him in interesting situations by also selecting his ex girlfriend Tahiry to join the cast. Budden has already given people a preview of how messy he can be on his Instagram account, as well as that whole incident in which he kicked someone out of his recent performance for tweeting.
Of course, there had to be a few changes made to the original cast that has been a part of the show since season one. Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones left to film their own reality show after the couple felt like they were betrayed by Mona Scott Young (they didn’t like how they looked on TV and Chrissy felt like Mona purposely put her in bad situations for good TV), so they did not return for Season 3. Much to the surprise of many, Kimbella also will not be returning, as it is rumored that she did not come back because her on and off boo, rapper Juelz Santana, wasn’t too thrilled with her being on the show.
Regardless, the new cast was recently revealed a few weeks ago, and now the official trailer for season 3 has been released.
Check it out and take a quick look at the drama to come:
Season 3 of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta premieres Monday January 7 at 8/7c on VH1.
